    IRO Mia flight report

    Me likey .. Dunno why I bothered with AL for so many years.. steel is where's it's @ ... yea the rigid fork took about all of 10min to get used to, but after that it was pure euphoria. looks like the FR bike will see a lot of "hang on the wall" time this season










    almost there.... just a few more feet

    Looks good. Can't wait to get mine up in some challenging terrain. What gearing are you running?

    the 6" xtr hydros are better than the mag-hayes on my fr bike just gots to re-bleed them using the siringe technique.... I have the bike set up with 32:17 and it seems to be a perfect medium for me... might try 32:16 at the end of the season... if I'm brave enough
    no shmuck...just a good bud of mine on a gearie... this is a SS forum.. no need to see geared bikes

    hey there

    no one probably gives a damn but I had a little photoshop fun at work today (part of my job is jacking around with photoshop) and reworked one of these pics. Thought maybe someone might enjoy.

    i had fun with it

    actually though, it would have been cool to make the leaves black and white too, I just didn't think of it. I'm glad you like. I probably should have asked before I started using your photos though. Sorry. Actually, if anybody wants a photo of them reworked to use as a desktop, I'd be happy to do it. It gives me something to do when I'm bored.

    Sweet shots

    Glad to see you're loving the Mia. I'm up in Oregon right now taking a class and I sure wish I had brought the Mia instead of the FS bike.
